Congratulations to this year's retirees!

Each year we honor those employees who are retiring from our district. Their accomplishments are celebrated with their supervisors, coworkers, loved ones, and our Board of Directors during a special reception. While we are not able to celebrate this year’s retirees in person, we want to ensure that they know just how much we appreciate them.

This year’s retirees have contributed more than 364 years of service to Lake Stevens School District and have positively impacted the lives of countless students. We thank them for their dedication, and for working each day to advance the mission and vision of our district.

Please take a few minutes to enjoy this special photo slideshow.
